THIRD ARTIST RECITAL.
Mr. Xaver Scharwenka gave us our last
Artist Recital of this year, Monday evening,
February 6. He presented a very interesting
program, one which gave adequate scope for
his display of versatile and intelligent
musical art. The fact that he brought his
own piano was very characteristic of his
playing; it had the independence and mas-
tery of possession.
His first big Chopin number had exceed-
ingly great difficulties of technique — per-
haps the greatest of any piece written for the
piano — and the player executed it with a
masterful, firm touch, brought a great depth
of tone out of it, and achieved fine rhetorical
effects. It was essentially exciting, and made
a very impressive opening number.
The following Liszt selections obtruded
their technique upon us. Mr. Scharwenka's
runs had a ravishing daintiness, ease and
clearness, and in the "Ricordanza" they gave
a character almost childlike to the lightness
and sweetness of the piece, so that its mean-
ing and message was poignantly felt. Im-
agination was powerfully present again in
the " Mephisto Valse," which was very mys-
terious. The various moods were well
chained together and strikingly contrasted,
and the suspense was managed dramatically.
The player showed himself capable in this
number to capture that elusive thing, "at-
mosnhere." The character of this piece
demands something more than ''legitimate
piano playing" to make it interesting, and
the recurring weird melody wrung all its
meaning out of the pure tone and
impressionistic thunderous effects of the
artist. The surprise in ending with the final
twist to a different key was managed with a
finish and precision that was very moving.
A Chopin nocturne followed as an encore,
and here Mr. Scharwenka's dignity and
graciousness in giving encores deserves
tribute. The imaginative element was in
such prominence in the rendition of this
selection as to make the effect almost dream-
like. Always pianistically conceived, the
voices were like singing, the phrases com-
pleted in a way that made the long, pleasing
melodies subside, as it were, into effer-
vescences. The nocturne character was
definite and in perfect proportions.
The long Beethoven sonata received an
intelligent and appreciative execution, the
quietness, the delicacy, and, above all, the
essential bigness of the sonata being well
interpreted. All the possibilities of tone and
mood and feeling came out wonderfully, and
one felt oneself stirred by the dignity and
greatness of the work. This number was
resting, following directly, as
lid, upon the Liv/.f and Chopin selections.
Mr. Scharwenka's own compositions were
' evidence of study
before. His first, "Theme with Variations,"
was especially interesting, and showed great
skill in composition. The two "Polish
Dances" had a splendid folk-song individ-
uality, and progressed with abandon and a
Two more encores followed, a " Waldstuck"
of Schumann's, played with the dreaminess,
and finish which leave no
e of workman ,hip, and a Chopin " Walz"
with exquisite articulation and spirit. Mr.
irwenka is a iters
faithfully, who allows nothing of,theirs to be
hidden from him, and who does not obtrude
his own style upon his interpretations to the
extent of concealing, even slightly, their

GLEE CLUB CONCERT.
On Friday and Saturday evenings, Feb-
ruary 10 and 11, College Hall Chapel was
filled with crowds of those who had come to
hear the annual concert of the Glee and
Mandolin Clubs. The entire program went
with a snap that assured success, and both
clubs responded unusually well to their
The Glee Club began the concert with the
singing of " 'Neath the Oaks" and "The
Maiden and the Nightingale," whic u caught
mcy of the audience from the start.
The encore, "The Gap in the Hedge," was
The opening number of the Mandolin
Club was a march, " Monstrat Viam." This
went with a dash that evoked much ap-
plause. The encore was a "Football Medley,"
arranged from football songs of Yale and
Harvard. This proved so popular that it,
too, was encored.
Then the Glee Club sang the "Rose
Waltz," whose beautiful melody was well
brought out by the singing. For an encore
there was a charming little "coon" song,
"Pale Brown Lady Sue."
The Mandolin Quartet followed. Mil-
dred Wilson played first mandolin, Eleanor
Hall, second mandolin, Alberta Peltz, man-
dola and Carrie Longanecker, guitar. The
first of the two numbers was a simple little
lullaby, "Sleep, Little Baby of Mine," played
very softly and dreamily. The second num-
ber was "Wooden Shoes," which showed the
real powers of the quartet to the bi
vantage, as the time was exceedingly difficult
for concerted playing. It was repeated as
The popular "Shopgy Shoo" was sung
next by the Glee Club, the musical setting
of Paul Ambrose being the one used. This
song never fails to win applause and the
Clee Club 's sympathetic rendition won it
more laurels. The second part of t his number
was "The Tale of the Moon and the Star."
It was one of i he best sung and catchiesl
QUmbi rs the Clee Club has ever sung. The
1 ncore was "( ) I [earl 0' Mine."
The concluding number of the first pari
of the program was t he " Medl< y"
Mandolin Club. Thi pari oi this,
including "My Hero," was extre I] well

Pursell and Sylvia Goulston, to the
tune of "The Girl with the Brogue," from
"The Arcadians." We rejoiced over the
prospect of a Faculty with solitaires, over
the information kindly given to Sophomores
that "if they were dutiful they would be
beautiful," and most especially were we com-
forted by the reassurance that "we still
have Tupelo." Harriet Coman sang the
verses, and the Glee Club the chorus.
The next of the Mandolin Club's numbers,
"Salut d' Amour," showed the best work it
did in the evening. The shading, with the
usually sustained soft notes was exquisite and
showed much careful preparation.
The Glee Club followed with a duet and
chorus, "The Miller's Wooing." Miss Goss
and Miss Smart sang the solo parts. Both
of the solo voices were clear and sweet, and
the chorus was especially effective.
The Mandolin Club's fourth number was
"Water Lilies." It was a composition with
attractive, rippling melody and unexpected
louder parts. The encore was "La Zithera,"
which was played upon all the instruments
after the manner of a harp and gave a per-
fect imitation of the soft tinkle of a zither.
The Glee Club's last number was an In-
dian Serenade, which showed very good,
united work. The next number was the
quartet, composed of Miss Goss, Miss Co-
man, Miss Goding and Miss Rugg. The
first number was especially lovely, and the
four voices blended exceedingly well. The
second number was a rather weird song, "Far
Off I Ileai a Lovci's Fiuie." TrfiS, too showed
splendid work by all four members of the
The Mandolin Club's concluding number
was a rapid Spanish waltz, "Pepeeta." It
was a brilliant concert piece and found much
favor with the audience.
The program was concluded by "Alma
Mater," by the Glee and Mandolin Clubs.

To bore — or to be bored — ? The News
propounds the question to its readers with
all seriousness, as one to be duly considered.
Especially profitable is such meditation at
this time of the year, when, with midyears —
let us hope, safely, — behind you, you are
plunging blindly into a new semester, your
note-book filled with new, empty pages.
Your mind also is conveniently cleared of
all surplus knowledge of the past half year's
work, and you are ready to assimilate all
the new lectures and discussions which will
soon almost swamp you with their conflict-
ing ideas. At such a time, you perhaps
insist, you consider that abstract meditation
is not the wisest way in which to open a
semester's work; the NEWS, however, hastens
t o assure you that a few moments' considera-
tion of tlie subject of Boredom will not
greatly stand in the way of the A credits
which you are planning for.
Unless you are a very exceptional kind
of a person- and you most probably arc
not you are rather likely to have one of
two prevailing tendencies in your relation-
ships with those about you — you are either
one who bores some, if not all, of your neigh-
or, if you are clever enough not to
bore them, you are bored by them.
It may not be given you to choose between
these attitudes for, if you bore your friends,
.mi are doubtless happy in your ignorance.
The refreshing side of you is that you have
no idea that you are uttering bromidioms,

or talking endlessly on worn-out subjects.
You yourself are delightfully interested in
what yem are saying, and it does not occur to
you that some one else would make exactly
the same remark under the same circum-
stances. You are having a much more
satisfactory experience than your bored,
superior friend, and in the opinion of the
editor, you are much more to be envied
than she. For she — poor mortal — no matter
how easy originality may be to her, has
her reputation to uphold ; she must be witty —
or, if not witty, she must at least escape the
bromidia. She is bound, at certain times,
to become self-conscious, and to consider
the impression she is making, for she inevita-
bly comes once in a while into contact with
another before whom every scrap of her
self-confidence vanishes, and she begins to
wonder why she is so hopelessly uninterest-
ing. She is continually on the alert to catch
and comment on bromidic remarks of others ;
she has become almost morbidly sensitive
to them, and she is likely to construe the
most harmless statements into glaring^bro-
midioms. She looks on life from a vastly
superior standpoint, and in reality narrows
herself down to a pitifully small outlook,
bounded by her own ideas — poor, or good,
as the case may be — of the interesting and
the stupid. She chooses her associates from
this outlook — governs her choices and her
actions from this outlook; she is decidedly in
danger of becoming an insufferable egotist —
all because she is bored. yJ *
'I'he person who bores, however, has the
happy faculty of never being bored, and,
because she demands less she is, on the
whole, a more comfortable person to live
with. She finds something interesting in
each new individuality with which she come
in contact; she docs not demand that thai
person In- startlingly original. She finds
pleasure, not only in people, but in situa-
tions the most commonplace, at which her
bored neighbor would high in excess of boredom
She could say truly with Mr. J. R. Green: -
"What seems fairer to me as life goes by,
IS th< love and peace and tenderness of it;
no1 it . wit and cleverness and grandevu oi
edge, grand as knowledge is, but just
the laughter of lit t Le children, and t he friend-
ship of friends, and the COSy talk by the lire-
side, and the sight of flowers, and th<
Results of the Suffrage Vote.
The vol ing of Pebruai 5 1 on the que I ion
oi equal uffragi re ulted in a 1 udenl vote
of 850, of which 557 were opposed to the ex-
tension of suffrage, 293 in favor of it. Of
the 45 votes cast by the Faculty, 36 were in
favor of it, 9 opposed. The classes voted as
191 1 : Yes, 83. No, 103.
191 2: Yes, 66. No, 118.
1913: Yes, 59. No, 115.
1914: Yes, 67. No, 194.
This adverse vote is attributed to lack of
knowledge and indifference on the part of
the majority of the student body.
"It seems unlikely that such a vote would
have occurred at Yassar, where the spirit
seems uncommonly militant of recent years.
One is usually told 'back East' of the pioneer
flavor to the Wellesley traditions, of how the
college stood out stoutly for am entire Faculty
of women, for example, and other things
equally impressive in the early days. But
we fear that this vote on woman's suffrage
scarcely reflects anything but the indiffer-
ence to contemporary life of a lot of sheltered

It cannot be a new fact 1 anyone t hat Europeans and returning

degree of mastery of the habit of employing their vocal organs after
the fashion of good society."
There was an amusing, but a sad article a year ago in the
Boston Transcript by a Bostonian who was slowly becoming
aware of the vocal peculiarities of her country-women:
"At the end of the year and a half I emerged from my Italian
surroundings and began the usual tour across Europe, constantly
meeting and talking with Americans. The shock was indescrib-
able. The first day of my journey I occupied the compartment of
the railway carriage with four delightful young ladies from various
states. Every time any one of them spoke I winced
I do not expect anyone to believe my description of it."
I think that there is no sensitive woman who has traveled who
has not had the same or worse experience. I remember a party of
American girls taking possession of a pension in Edinburgh and my
sensitiveness to the deserved criticism on their speech. Sad to say
all American voices under the stress of excitement are recognized.
Oliver Wendell Holmes, years ago, spoke feelingly on the same
subject. Must the criticism be forever smilingly accepted, or is it
the duty of every intelligent woman to wake to the fact that some-
thing can be done about it?
( )ne of the superintendents of the New York public schools said
that he would never employ a teacher without seeing her; and that,
no matter how perfect her equipment for teaching, if she had a dis-
agreeable voice and lack of presence, on no condition would he en-
gage her. Is he not right? He would not have another generation
by imitation follow such an example.
Lately an Englishwoman addressed the Wellesley Faculty
and made everyone who heard her realize the beauty of the English
language as strongly as the beauty of her thought. "Her voice was
music," and her clear, crisp enunciation a real mental satisfaction.
Why not? Those beautiful words have come way down through the
ages to us.
My theme was to be not altogether the need of elocution, but
also what the college has to offer. All that has been said is timely if
the student can be made to realize that voice-training is the essential
point in all the work.
The wrong attitude in college, in fact, out of college, too, is that
elocution should be the study of those who have talent for it.
Far from it! It should, above all, be the study of those deficient in
vocal power. We all, too, need to remember that it takes patience
and time to combat the faults fostered from childhood. Many a
one of us really "speaks as a child," trying, in a child's voice, to
record the experience of the woman.
To overcome all this, demands of the student openness to
criticism and faithful concentrated practice on technique. Voice
work is like five-finger exercises in music, to which even genius is not
superior. In our American zeal to get on, we forget this fact.
It is encouraging to know thai every voice can be improved.
More students should elect the work because of their great need oi
Course I lias for its object I lie training in position and bre;i th-
ing essentials for voice production, indeed, for health and appear-
ance; also training in articulation necessary to all human inter-
course, and the simple, direct speaking of good literature.
The small divisions in voice work under Miss Drouet make it
possible to approach individual attention in these respects.
Elocution II, in addition to the continuance of the aims of

bodily freedom and the appreciation and expression of the higher
forms of literal ure.

comes coi i oi the power and felicity of diction. The charac-
too, begin to come out of the pages and live for us. We find
thai in daily life they thoughl and felt much as we should. When we
find common ground with them, what delight to strive for their

It is hard for the students to understand the exact necessity of
there being a full day of recitations on the Tuesday of the first week
of examinations. In spite of the "holiday atmosphere," midyears is,
for most people, a decidedly strenuous period; it is easy to talk
against "cramming," yet, when a semester's work has to be reviewed
in a day, cramming is inevitable. It is often impossible to gain
time for review before midyears begin, and when an examination
comes on Wednesday, following a day of six recitations on Tuesday,
it is a severe tax on almost any student, for few of us, no matter
how thoroughly we have kept up in our work, feel able to take our
examinations without a fairly systematic study of each course. Of
course the case mentioned is an extreme one; yet nearly every-
one has a few days of hard, concentrated work, either at the begin-
ning or end of the two weeks. And to have Tuesday free would
be of inestimable value. It does not seem to the writer that the
value gained from one more day's recitations could outweigh the
time used for preparation. 191 2.
Is there any reason why the weekly meeting of the Christian
Association on Thursday nights cannot be held in Billings Hall
instead of in College Hall Chapel? Many of us in the east end of
College Hall, for whom Friday is a full day, find it impossible to
attend every meeting, and yet our studies are disturbed for over
half an hour by the constant stream of people going in and out, the
slamming of the door and the intermittent singing. Especially
during midyears it has proved distracting and annoying. It is
frequently said that we should all attend meetings, but none of us
are given back this half hour's time to prepare for our work, nor are
our assignments lessened by half an hour because it is Thursday.
Unless there is some special objection to be urged against it, I should
think that the transference of the meeting to Billings Hall would be
a simple solution of the difficulty and prove satisfactory to all of

all, they are not half bad. Our brains throbbed and we worked
rapidly and discovered that, we were capable of undreamed of
powers of application. The more we crammed, the more we were
capable of cramming. Our brains grew clearer and we realized our
greater capabilities of concentration. Those vagu< and Loosely-
connected hundreds of odd facts were assorted and given their real

conglomerate notes and numerous text-books. The fact is that mid-
years has given us a grasp of ourselves and a grasp of our work as
well as a relief from the routine of classes. Have we, then, well-
founded reasons for groaning over midyears? And would it not be
well, when the time arrives next year, to welcome it as a time of real
effort and valuable endeavor rather than an interval of unmerited
pain and anguish?

All members of the college interested in birds, especially if
planning a trip abroad this summer, will find it worth while to ex-
amine the case of birds of Western Europe, chiefly from France,
derived from the Babcock collection, which have recently been
transferred to individual stands and relabeled. This case will be
found on the north side of the fourth floor center.
The collection consists of one hundred and one specimens, repre-
senting fifty-seven species. Some of these are so similar to our
American species as to seem almost like replicas, e. g., the Swallow
(cf. Barn-swallow), as might be expected in birds from the same
great faunal realm (Holarctic region) ; while others present interest-
ing differences. The Redbreast is the "Robin Redbreast" of
literature, quite different from ours, while the Blackbird is a thrush
and shows its kinship with our American robin. The Kingfisher
is much smaller and more vividly colored than ours. Bright colors
are in evidence also on the Goldfinch, Bullfinch, Titmouse and Green
Woodpecker. The Jay is a very giant comparatively, and the
Cuckoo is a large, hawklike creature (cf. the Sparrowhawk), whence
the old saying that cuckoos became transformed into hawks in
winter. The Hoopoe with its striking crest; the Wryneck, a relative
of the woodpeckers; and the graceful Wagtails, belong to groups not
represented in this country; and the Warblers are quite unrelated
to our American warblers, being members of the thrush family.
